If it is just one beep then Windows loads, it is POST, Power On Self Test

Abbreviated POST, a diagnostic testing sequence run by a computerís BIOS as the computerís power is initially turned on. The POST will determine if the computerís RAM, disk drives, peripheral devices and other hardware components are properly working. If the diagnostic determines that everything is in working order, the computer will continue to boot.
